Wine: The Auburn affair (NZ)
I love the first line on the Auburn Wines’ website: “We grow Riesling. We craft Riesling. We love Riesling. A lot.” First, because it intrinsically explains why they chose to become New Zealand’s only riesling-exclusive winery. Second, as they used the words “A lot” instead of “Bigtime”, “Totally” or “Fully”, which they easily could have because with their wrap-around shades, beanies and cargo pants, the Auburn crew (with the exception of the girls) all look like bewhiskered Gen-Y snowboarders, reports The Aucklander.
